Can Ted, in death, deliver the goods?

Here’s a non-starter, an un-Dead phenomenon, if ever there was one:

‘Win One for Teddy,’ Say Dems Pushing for Health Reform
ABC News, by Teddy Davis

Democrats are hoping that the memory of Sen. Ted Kennedy will revive the Democratic Party’s flagging push for health care reform. “You’ve heard of ‘win one for the Gipper’? There is going to be an atmosphere of ‘win one for Teddy,’” Ralph G. Neas, the CEO of the liberal National Coalition on Health Care, told ABC News.

Got it? Just as the assassination of President Kennedy resulted in the passage of radical liberal legislation he was unable to pass while alive, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Immigration Reform Act of 1965, both of which set this country on the path to national suicide, the Dems think the Swimmer’s passing will have a similar effect today on Obamacare. How pathetic. Do these leftoids really imagine that the demise of a 77 year old burned out hulk will have a galvanizing effect on the national conscience similar to that of the traumatic murder of his dashing 46 year old brother almost a half century ago? Evidently they do. After all, as Ted himself intoned at the Democratic Convention in 1980 (and he was already a burned out hulk back then), “The Dream will never Die.”

But the Dems’ little problem is: the Dream itself is a burned out hulk.
